Welcome to Biomedical Sciences

Biomedical Sciences at Brunel offers the highest standard of teaching. Our teaching team received the Higher Education Academy's Collaborative Award for Teaching Excellence 2016, which recognises outstanding teamwork in teaching.

We are an expanding and forward-looking division and promote a commitment and passion to science. We pursue excellence in both teaching and research, and believe that by linking the two we can provide the best education and experience for our students.

Our enthusiatic academics are research-active in cancer genetics, diagnosis and treatment, infection and immunity as well as human health and ageing. We also have experts in genomic medicine, structure and stability, DNA repair and stem cell biology. We have newly refurbished laboratories with a wide range of state-of-the-art facilities, equipment and expertise, and broad international and interdisciplinary collaborations.

All of our BSc programmes are accreditited by the Royal Society of Biology. This means you'll graduate from an academically excellent programme with the skills that your employers are looking for. 


The curricula for our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes reflect up-to-date discoveries and are taught by highly motivated scientists in a research-active environment.

  • The aim of our Biomedical Sciences BSc programme, and subject specific pathways, is to provide students with an understanding of the main subject areas in Biosciences and medically-related research. The programmes seek to develop graduates with good practical, analytical and transferable skills applicable to a wide range of employment opportunities.
  • Our programmes with Professional Experience include a one year work placement in a scientific area. Students who undertake a placement are statistically more likely to achieve a higher degree classification than those who study on a full time course. Students gain greater self-confidence, motivation, time-management, and personal and social skills.
  • Our Molecular Medicine and Cancer Research MSc, enables students to gain specialist theoretical and practical knowledge of human diseases and focus on developing research skills. The programme is taught on a one year full-time or two year part-time basis.

We also offer a number of Biomedical Sciences CPPD (Continuing Personal and Professional Development) courses to develop and extend your skills in Bioscience.
